A Little Snowman


This my Christmas card painting for 2016, a little snow man with a sheaf for the birds.
I wanted to add a little bird as well but skipped it because I didn't have enough time to finish it.

Children of Spring

Children of Spring

I wanted to do paint something related to spring and I was trying to come up with some kind of story before starting.
The story that came to my mind was about tiny children going out in the morning to create flowers for spring and to hide from the world they dress up like the flowers they are creating.
My illustration is suppose to be showing how the big sister Hepatica is taking her little brother Tussilago (Coltsfoot) out on his first adventure.

Again I tried to make it look like watercolours, having abit more fun painting these instead of what I did before.. just over-rendering everything.

A flower for you

A flower for you

This is an illustration I made for Mother's day.

I wanted to do something fast and simple but that didn't happen like always hehe. I was struggling to find the right colours on this one. I think I went through atleast a dozen variations. Specially the background behind her was changed numerous times cause I couldn't make up my mind but I always ended up up going back to this combo.

And again I tried to make it look more like traditional art. I quite enjoy it, it's something new and different than what I normally do.
Sadly I have no art supplies to try the real deal so this will have to do.

Tools: Easy Paint Tool Sai, Wacom Bamboo
Time: From idea to finish: Few hours a day for 3 weeks. I'm not goign to lie, I am slow. Half of the time used to just try to find the right colour palette lol.
